Edgegap in partnership with ZEBEDEE, the next generation payments-processor, announced that Edgegap’s server orchestration platform tailored for multiplayer games is now accessible to game developers utilizing ZEBEDEE’s payments platform. This latest partnership will join the vision of the two companies toward a unified and global marketplace accessible to all game makers and players.

ZEBEDEE’s fully programmable payments platform allows developers to send, receive and pay with Bitcoin in and outside their game, with transactions as small as $0.0002. The technology enables innovative payment-based mechanics, such as real-time micro-transactions based on actions the player takes in the game, with no fees and instant settlement. The nature of these transactions requires seamless connectivity with minimal latency and lag, making Edgegap’s flexible server orchestration a powerful proposition for developers and gamers alike.

Edgegap’s ever-expanding distributed cloud network with 450+ locations worldwide can handle any traffic volume through automation and rapid-scaling orchestration. Its proximity hosting technology deploys game instances in the optimal location to deliver near-zero latency regardless of players’ platform, location or internet access type. It is supported by the ultimate peace of mind – an industry best 99.9% availability.

We hope this partnership will empower developers to confidently deploy their games worldwide with near-zero latency for a flawless multiplayer experience,”  said Mathieu Duperre, CEO of Edgegap.

“ZEBEDEE is proud to add Edgegap as part of its ecosystem of tools and products to give our developer partners on-demand access to premium multiplayer server infrastructure that can natively incorporate our own payments capabilities,” says Ben Cousens, Chief Strategy Officer at ZEBEDEE.

This marks the beginning of an ambitious partnership for the two companies, who detected a natural fit in their offerings and are committed to building innovative solutions targeting both game makers and gamers. As gaming continues to become more social and interaction-driven, flexible and instant global server infrastructure and flexible and global payments technology should come hand in hand. The new partnership between Edgegap and ZEBEDEE places both companies at the forefront of this innovation.

Evgeniy Babitsyn from Bets.io Comments on the Future of BTC

In January 2024, the SEC approved 11 Bitcoin ETFs, marking a significant announcement for Bitcoin and the wider crypto-market. This approval demonstrates the growing integration of traditional finance with decentralized finance. The announcement has sparked mixed reactions, with crypto experts questioning what this means for the future of tradable crypto assets. On the back of the announcement, the news that BlackRock will now be the biggest holder of Bitcoin has made the issue more complex.

Evgeniy Babitsyn, CMO of Bets.io, is an expert crypto commentator who has been closely monitoring these latest developments.

“There are pros and cons to the BTC ETF. On the one hand, it gives retail investors another avenue of access to the crypto market, allowing them to invest through a traditional finance instrument. This is important because investors not well-versed in crypto investing can find it difficult to access and invest in crypto assets,” he said. “However, the bigger point here is that BTC’s incorporation into an ETF goes against the founding principles of cryptocurrency. Its evolution is a consequence of advanced technology removing the ‘middleman’ in transactions, empowering individuals to make transactions free of bureaucratic institutions.”

When it comes to the regulation of crypto assets, Evgeniy does admit that there is a role for regulators to play. However, he advises it should not go against the fundamentals of cryptocurrencies. “While there is a role for regulation to play, having an ETF in play goes against what BTC initially set out to achieve as an alternative to traditional financial systems.”

Increased institutional involvement in crypto trading can also distort the market, posing significant questions for the future. “News is now emerging that the world’s largest asset manager, BlackRock, is on track to becoming the biggest holder of BTC because of the ETF,” Evgeniy said. “Coupled with this, the ongoing developments from state entities to regulate crypto assets, the question now is whether the institutional embrace of BTC marks the beginning of the end for the coin, at least in its original form.”

Bets.io is a renowned brand within the world of crypto iGaming. It was launched in 2021 and has been rapidly expanding ever since. In 2022, the brand was acclaimed as The Rising Star Operator of the Year by SiGMA Europe for its ambition, results, and potential in the online entertainment industry. As such, it has been keenly watching the developments of crypto assets unfold.

Looking to the future, Evgeniy sees big announcements on the horizon. “For now, we know that 2024 will be a monumental year for the future of BTC, cryptocurrencies, and Web3.”

ZBD partners with Fumb Games to integrate Bitcoin rewards into SpaceY

ZBD, a leading fintech company that offers instant Bitcoin rewards for gamers and developers, today announces its second integration partnership with idle mobile game developer Fumb Games, which sees the developer integrating Bitcoin rewards into its idle space game, SpaceY.

SpaceY has been available on app stores since 2019. With ZBD’s Bitcoin Lightning integration, players can continue their mission of mining resources, upgrading their mothership, and uncovering the secrets of a distant galaxy, while now earning real-money rewards. These rewards come in the form of ‘sats’, small pieces of Bitcoin which players will collect as they navigate the galaxy.

The integration is powered by ZBD’s plug-and-play API which allows developers of all sizes to smoothly integrate Bitcoin Lightning rewards into their games, with zero friction. By sharing revenue with players, developers such as Fumb Games can reach new audiences and boost retention.

Christian Moss, Head of R&D at ZBD, commented:

“The SpaceY ZBD integration builds on the tremendous success of our initial partnership with Fumb Games’ Bitcoin Miner. The SpaceY integration is yet another clear demonstration of how developers and publishers can easily integrate our API into games, thereby injecting a new lease of life into existing gaming content. It means gamers have a new dynamic of earning whilst they idle-play, and developers and publishers have another powerful tool to retain and acquire new users, and therefore additional revenue streams.”

Paul West, CEO and Founder, of Fumb Games, added:

“Just as with Bitcoin Miner, SpaceY is a game designed for maximum enjoyment, irrespective of whether you’re a Bitcoin enthusiast or not. The success of our initial partnership with ZBD,  onboarding over one million players to Bitcoin Miner in 2023, serves as a testament to our commitment and propels our ambitious strategy to welcome ten million players in 2024.”

The integration of ZBD’s Bitcoin reward technology into SpaceY builds upon ZBD’s prior success with Fumb Games’ Bitcoin Miner which increased the game’s 30-day user retention by over 10 times. As a result, Bitcoin Miner now boasts over one million players and has been labelled as one of the biggest play-to-earn games. Players can download the ZBD app from Google Play and the App Store.
